Village Voice's Description

The neon-lit Hotel D'Orsay sign looming over the back room's stage (on which alt-lit freshmen air out their slam poetry and Brazilian bongo kings groove impromptu) is not the only attitude at this Park Slope hideaway. The burly bartender is blunt and stone-faced, but is happy to break out rarely imbibed aperitifs, and teach you the way Ernest and Ezra drank Pernod and Ricard in Paris back in their literary day. Try a Barbes, basically a Cosmo with dashes of Chambord and Pernod. Stay for the band, and you won't be disappointed; this is one of the finest world music venues in town.

Tips from foursquare

  • AskMen on 02/08/10

    The booze-fluent bar and performing space has everything you need for a good night. A bar, live entertainment and a great atmosphere.

  • Time Out New York on 02/01/12

    This small French space hosts one of the city’s most diverse music scenes in its back room. Arrive early to take advantage of happy hour, with $1 off beers and $3 off cocktails.

  • Esquire on 01/31/11

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. This tiny, candle-lit, boho bar and performance space is an Anti-Dive, home to smart conversations, and smarter-looking women.

  • Luke H. on 01/05/11

    Try the Old Speckled Hen, which is creamy, like Boddington's or Guiness.

  • Emma P. on 10/20/11

    Stephane Wrembel on Sunday nights is amazing
